Lucky Braids All-in-One Shampoo
I bought this product because I saw reviews on the PHBA FB page that it was great for getting out stains and also was great for helping the hair coat be shiny. I definately make my Palomino sparkle , but I am not impressed with stain removing power, the stain on my horses white sock is still there after 3 wahes... so I think it is a great conditioning shampoo, but not a great stain remover... you still need whitening shampoos.

I tried this shampoo after reading reviews and doing a lot of research. I wanted a natural shampoo that would allow me to wash my horse frequently in the summer after rides, as he tends to get quite sweaty and foamy. You will be amazed by how clean, soft, and shiny your horse is after using this-I thought my horse looked the best he ever has after his bath, and he stayed easy to clean for about three weeks after when we had a cold snap, which was nice! I also had some trouble with my horse getting "gunk" on his hind legs and back, and this shampoo helped clear it up really fast, along with lots of currying. My favorite way to use it is to put some in a bucket of warm water and wash my horse, then rinse. If he's hot after a ride, I usually combine some Sore No More Liniment and this shampoo in a bucket of warm water and wash, then rinse with warm water again. I use warm water to protect his back, and the liniment also helps cool him out. Anyways, highly recommend this product for anyone with any color horse (it got my friend's white pony blinding-including his stained yellow tail) on any budget-a little goes a long way!

The best horse shampoo!
I've used this shampoo for years. I started using it with a my grey (white!) show hunter who always started each morning covered in green manure stains. Lucky Braids easily removes stains, it leaves the coat soft and shiny, and it isn't drying at all -- I used it several times a week at shows. It's very concentrated, so a little goes a long way; I expect 1 bottle will last through a summer of heavy showing.

After reading the reviews in Horse Journal, I decided to try Lucky Braids Shampoo for a horse that continually gets rainrot during the summer months. Painful crusty lesions soften and clear up fairly quickly, and it leaves the coat soft and shiny, rinses easily and does not leave suds behind. It is now my "go to" product when the bumps start to appear.

Great for Manes and Tails
Love this shampoo for my Thoroughbred's mane and tail. It lathers very easily, you don't have to use much at all, and rinses easily. And the smell is just heavenly! I love how silky clean my guy's mane and tail come out. Haven't tried it as a body wash yet.

Best Whitening and Conditioning Ever
I bought this for the first time about 2 or 3 yrs ago, after Horse Journal first recommended it, and I'm just now realizing how great it is, now that I have my first gray horse. Forget the blue shampoos that stain everything and dry out the skin. This one actually improves my horses' coats AND whitens the grays and the chrome. It is definitely worth the money. I still like Corona, and keep a bottle of each, but Lucky Braids is awesome stuff!
